Default Reactive to Scent?

So my current foster is odd. I see a lot of dogs on a daily basis with reactivity issues, and often other dogs are the trigger. This is also the case with foster boy. Usually these dogs become unglued at the sight or sometimes sound of other dogs. So does foster boy. But what I have no experience with is a dog that reacts to the SCENT of other dogs. And he reacts with a whole lot more intensity than if he just caught sight of one or heard one barking from behind a fence. I can keep him under threshold at the sight or sound of other dogs on our walk, calm him down, and start practicing look-at-thats and auto-watches, but not when he's upset over a scent.

Obviously, this is a lot trickier to deal with because, apart from avoiding areas with a lot of dog traffic, I have no way of predicting when we are coming up to some dog stank on our walk.

Has anybody ever seen this before?
